SAFETY BOARD TO
RESCIND ORDERS
State Commission Announces
Such Action for Feb. 5 Unless
Legislature Acts.
AWAITS INSTRUCTIONS
8uggests Enactment if War Measures
Are to Be ContinuedStanding
Committees for Senate and
House Named.
St. Paul.All orders of the State
Public Safety commission will be re
scinded Feb. 5, unless the state legis
lature acts to continue the orders, it
was announced by the commission
when It referred to the legislature a
measure making its orders inopera
tive.
Legislative Enactment Suggested.
The reason fof^the action, the com
mission said, is the measures were of
wartime necessity, and the signing of
the armistice makes a renewal of hos
tilities practically impossible. It is
also suggested, should the legislature
desire to continue all or some of the
orders, it may do so by enactment.
Copies of the rescinding measure
were sent to the house, the senate and
to Governor J. A. A. Burnguist, with
the statement that the rescinding or
der would become effective Feb. 5 un
less the commission was otherwise in
structed at its meeting Feb. 4.
Nearly half of the orders of the
Public Safety commission still in
force have a bearing on the liquor
traffic.
Home Guard Retention Sought.
Steps to continue the Minnesota
home guard as apart of the state mili
tary forces were taken by Adjutant
General W. F. Rhinow upon reports
that the order of the Safety commis
sion creating the home guard will be
made inoperative Feb. 5.
The horns guard was created by or
der No. 3 issued by the Public Safety
commission. General Rhinow plans to
interview members of the legislature
with a view to having the home guard
continue in existence by legislative
enactment.
